A portmanteau of Metroid and Castlevania, so games like those 2D scrolling platformers.

Oh, I'm not familiar with either of those but Google helped. I'm not a big fan of scrollers.

While I'm not a fan of the Switch itself, I am a fan of Nintendo's software. They have a number of excellent first party games to play. One game I didn't mention previously is Astral Chain, which is by all accounts an excellent action RPG.

That's a bit of a shame as side scrolling platformers are among some of the best games I've ever played.

I haven't touched the Switch since the day I got it. :ashamed:

On another note, this mini-documentary on the history of game consoles is great. My family had the original Odyssey when I was about 7 yrs. old.

My video game play list is kind of boring. Mostly Fortnite, because I used to play with my kids and my niece and nephews. My kids have moved on to Rocket League and Roblox, and I still play occasionally with them but I'm the one who is now addicted.

I moved onto Save the World (the original game mode of Fortnite) where I met a group of folks on Twitch that I routinely party up with now to grind missions.

When I eventually bore of Fortnite, I've begun playing Multiversus and my old standby The Division.
